Flyers acquire D Grossman from Dallas

PHILADELPHIA (AP) - The Philadelphia Flyers have acquired defenseman Nicklas Grossman from the Dallas Stars in exchange for a 2012 second-round pick and a 2013 third-round pick.

The Flyers announced the trade before Thursday's game against Buffalo. Grossman, a 6-foot-4, 230-pound defenseman, has five assists in 52 games this season. He has three goals and 41 points in 333 career NHL games.

Grossman is set to become an unrestricted free agent this summer.

Quote of the Day

It's pretty crazy, but believe me when I say we didn't draft these players with the mindset we had to because they had good hockey-playing dads. It just turned out that way. But we're certainly glad they're a part of our organization.
